A Quote by Kenyon Cox on body, goal, money, soul, work, paint, sing, carve, starve, and glory

Work thou for pleasure, paint or sing or carve.
The thing  thou lovest, though the body starve!

Who works for glory misses oft the goal;
 Who works for money coins his very soul
 Work for the work's sake, then, and it may be,
That this thing shall be added unto thee.

Kenyon Cox

A Quote by Traditional on angels, birth, children, christ, day, glory, god, jesus, motherhood, paradise, people, simplicity, and soldiers

A Child This Day Is Born A child this day is born, A child of high renown, Most worthy of a sceptre, A sceptre and a crown: Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, sing all we may, Because the King of all kings Was born this blessed day. These tidings shepherds heard, In field watching their fold, Were by an angel unto them That night revealed and told: To whom the angel spoke, Saying, "Be not afraid; Be glad, poor silly* shepherds- Why are you so dismayed? "For lo! I bring you tidings Of gladness and of mirth, Which cometh to all people by This holy infant's birth": Then there was with the angel A host incontinent† Of heavenly bright soldiers, Which from the Highest was sent: Lauding the Lord our God, And His celestial King; All glory be in Paradise, This heavenly host did sing: And as the angels told them, So to them did appear; They found the young child, Jesus Christ, With Mary, His mother dear. *Simple. †Innumerable.
